Congratulations and a hearty thank you to everyone who took part, including Bob Brown of Toronto, who will be coming down to One Yonge later this morning for a newsroom tour and pickup of his brand-new set of NBA media guides.
Bob's opening-day bid of $140 for the package stood up right through the three days of the auction for the books, a nice bump for Proudfoot Corner, the sportside collection arm of The Star's Santa Claus Fund. Well done all.
On to the morning acreage, and we start with the competition, the Globe's James Christie checking in on 88-year-old Ed Miller, headed off to yet another Grey Cup game, where, after being asked the Jim Hunt question, the Eskimos coach says it's okay to have sex, although he adds he isn't getting any.
Congrats to Chuck Wakefield at Central Tech, runner-up for this year's national high school coach of the year award to Guelph's Jeff Yanchus.
On U.S. Thanksgiving -- I used to call it FakeSick Day, back in the day -- T.O. is still on a t.o.

Note: One more set of Champions League group games will go Dec. 6 and 7, with 10 of the 16 spots in the next, knockout stage decided. For teams like AC Milan, Rangers and especially the Old Trafford Glazers on the bubble, the stakes are enormous.
One more to watch today: After weeks of updates, it looks like this is the end for George Best.
